This is the only conference that brings the who’s who of produce and foodservice together. More than 1,800 people (500+ buyers, plus a VIP) attend to connect, learn, and do business. More than 75% influence or recommend purchases. Can’t go wrong with those stats.
You want to network with current and new partners, strengthen relationships, and learn about new products and trends. This event is ideal for you.
More than 600 buyers participate to find new products, menu ideas, and business solutions. They are operators (commercial and noncommercial, including educators, especially K-12), distributors, chefs and menu developers, travel/tourism, and more.
Currently 80+ school menu planners are registered. These individuals have menu and/or purchasing authority for some of our nation’s largest K-12 school districts, and include foodservice directors, school chefs, executives from foodservice management companies and state child nutrition administrators.
If they serve foodservice, they’re here: grower-shippers, processors, transportation and logistics companies, tech providers, packaging solutions firms. These are the experts with the latest and greatest products and services to make buyers’ lives a whole lot easier and more innovative. Check out the expo.
The VIP (very important place): Monterey and the Salinas Valley. The conference is the place to see and be seen, but that could happen anywhere. The secret sauce is the location. Beyond the attraction of Monterey, the ability to see the salad bowl of America, the place where it all happens, is amazing.
If you’re in produce and foodservice, you need to be here.
